For over a decade WeatherWatch.co.nz has loved to receive your comments and questions here, however we need to tighten up on our rules of reply so that we can spend more time focusing on forecasting.

Before you ask a question please ensure you have read our latest news stories, weather video and specially made infographics on our homepage, as we will no longer be answering questions that are already generally answered there, or answered already in our hourly or 10 day forecasts at both WeatherWatch.co.nz or RuralWeather.co.nz

With reference to my earlier message, the Kerikeri stations all record much lower wind speeds than we experience. Are they in particularly sheltered sites?

WW Forecast Team on 22/10/2021 11:54pm

Hi Bjorny, We don’t think it was us that removed it as we have nothing from Kerikeri in our list of blocked/faulty stations. We have no control over the privately owned weather stations, all we can do is remove broken ones. In this case the owner of it has likely removed it – perhaps to clean it or upgrade it, or it might be permanently gone. As for the sheltered areas, yes a lot of weather stations aren’t placed in the best spots for wind. All are useful for temperature readings but not all are placed within the windy areas – or may be in a location blocked simply by the garden fence.
Cheers

Hi Phil and team,

You’ve removed a station from your Kerikeri observations which, although often recording quite different wind speeds compared to the other Kerikeri stations, was by far the most accurate for our location. Is there any particular reason you removed it?

Thanks.

When will Auckland get sun again? Haha

WW Forecast Team on 22/10/2021 11:55pm

Hi Kyle, there should be sunny spells next week but….yes it is a fairly cloudy week coming up!

Please get the spelling for Pelorus Bridge corrected

WW Forecast Team on 9/10/2021 12:55am

Hi Richard, we had this fixed a few months ago. It shows up correctly when we type it in as you’ve spelt it. Can you please send us a screenshot of it written incorrectly to news @ weatherwatch.co.nz. Also, clearing your cache or force refresh may help.

Cheers
WW
